Channel 4 has announced the cast of the Chalkboard produced Vardy v Rooney: A Courtroom drama, a dramatisation of the 2022 High Court battle.

BAFTA-winning actress Chanel Cresswell (This is England, Trolled) takes on the role of Coleen Rooney with Natalia Tena (Harry Potter, Game of Thrones, 10.000KM) playing opposite her as fellow WAG, Rebekah Vardy.

Michael Sheen (Good Omens, Quiz) plays Coleen Rooney’s high profile barrister David Sherborne.

Simon Coury (The Professor and the Madman) will play Rebekah’s barrister, Hugh Tomlinson QC (now KC) who has famously represented a ‘who’s who’ of clients including King Charles III.

Wayne Rooney is played by Dion Lloyd and Jamie Vardy is played by Márton Nagyszokolyai.

Created from the real court transcripts, Vardy v Rooney: A Courtroom Drama will “bring viewers all of the incredible and unbelievable moments from a case that kept the public and media gripped.”

Vardy v Rooney: A Courtroom Drama is made by Chalkboard (Logan High, Cold Call & One Question, Murder, Mystery and My Family). The factual drama was commissioned for Channel 4 by commissioning editor Tim Hancock with Head of Factual Entertainment, Alf Lawrie. Tom Popay is Executive Producer for Chalkboard, with Oonagh Kearney (Five Letters) directing and Chris Atkins (Who Killed the KLF) writing.

Vardy v Rooney: A Courtroom Drama will air later this year.
